and invites them to watch a movie with spielberg. i'm referring to "lincoln." basically the republican party keeps talking on two sides of their face and not being hon west the american people they just don't like this president. but that's one of the reasons why the president recognizes his vacuum when it comes to that leadership. that's why he keeps sending vice president biden down to the congress to the negotiate on his behalf because they just don't like him. >> let's look at the record, maria teresa. speaker boehner has declined invitations to state dinners for each of the following countries, south korea, germany, china, mexico, india, and, of course, great britain. as for republican senate leader mitch mcconnell he turned down invasions for the state dinners of india and china. he even declined to come to the white house then the president was celebrating his home state's college basketball championships. but it's the president's fault that republicans aren't comfortable with him. explain that to me. >> something that may not be well-known is when boehner actually did go to one of th

to be taking the oath on lincoln's bible and martin luther king's bible. >> if i were him i would pay attention to one of the best inaugural speeches at the time which is i think not exactly the same but most similar was 1865. >> lincoln's second term. >> lincoln's speech used the word "i" one time. >> setting the bar very high. >> but i think we are at probably in this country at one of the most divisive polarized times we've had since the civil war and in that speech lincoln talked about we both pray to the same god, malice towards none, charity for all, and all of that, and i think this president, which i don't think will do, should come with a sense of humbleness, a sense of humility and a sense that basically the biggest problem he has in this country is the divisions that exist in this country that have only been made worse in the course of his presidency. age divisions, sex divisions, church divisions, all the divisions that exist in this country, he has to figure out a way to bring people together and solve some of the problems. >> which is why i think ping is a good example. he takes t
address in history is the second inaugural address which is lincoln which some people say surpasses the gettysburg address. it's the best lay sermon no history. >> and dr. jill bide ep is accompanied by honey alexander, the wife of senator lamar alexander. and by debby boehner, wife of house speaker john boehner. sorry to interrupt you there. >> more recently, you may disagree with the content and the tone but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now bu
of texas. he can rise above everyday politics and speak to history. lincoln did in the 1865, f.d.r. in 1937, now it's obama's chance." did he do that? >> yeah, i think he did it pretty well. this wasn't lincoln 1865 but we haven't had one since. the closest was roosevelt 1937. we're not likely to see that, charlie. i thought he did whatrand said he should do. i appreciate what mark is saying but i think this is not a programmatic speech. this is not a speech where you talk about here's my four-point jobs program. it's a speech about vision and i thought he gave a good sense of where he wanted the country to be i think it clearly was a progressive democratic speech. in f you read reagan's in 1985 it was a conservative republican speech. and a as for those who say -- i watched fox news who say he didn't offer olive branches or reach across the table to try to encourage birtisanship, i would note 16 years ago bill clinton in his second inaugural said that you have sent a democratic president and a republican congress back to washington, you didn't send us back to engage in bickering and partis
one. >> of course, there was lincoln's second inaugural where he talked about the wounds of the nation. we know that the president has been working on this president for weeks and major garrett, our chief white house correspondent, is at the white house this morning with a little bit of insight on what we might hear today. >> well, good morning, scott. those closest to the president tell us this speech is in the moment and it's going to talk, they hope, credibly, believably about responsibilities ahead. and the prospect for not only bipartisan compromise, and things that didn't seem achievable four years ago. it might be worth reminding us ourselves how the president ended first inaugural address four years ago. scott, the president talked about america being in the midst of a winter of our hardship and he urged the nation to brave icy currents and to endure whatever storms may come. there was a sense of forboding then, a sense of crisis, both economic and otherwise, that white house advisers that he feels is no longer as present now as it was then. so that's part of the optimistic not
and the -- in the atrocity of abortion and it should be as important as, you know, slavery was back in lincoln's time. it's the right of everyone to have life and liberty and these unborn babies across the country are being killed and we have a pro-life charity, saveunbornlives.org and we're trying to call to attention to look at these innocent little ones and offer hope to a abortion-mined women to choose life. i hope you get someone to speak on this issue because over 50% are pro life americans now and that should be the number one topic we should be talking about a personhood amendment just like lincoln talked about freing the slaves in his amendment. host: we'll be talking about the ageneral ka for the second term coming up in our last half of "the washington journal" this morning and we'll talk about, could there be another contraception fight like there was during the first term but you mentioned roe v. wade. that's the front page of the "washington times" this morning, abortion battle rages 40 years of row decision. protest planned in washington. more than one million abortions are performed each
this movie on lincoln, the recent movie on lincoln and the lesson of that movie, i think was, when hard things get done, they get done because a president decided he was going to do what was necessary to get them done and that means you have to realistically look at the world you live in and the washington you have been given by the american voters to work with. >> chris: let's talk about some of the specific items that will be on your agenda. what do you think of the new house republican plan to pass a short-term extension of the debt limit until april and in the meantime, insist that the senate pass a budget or all of you lose your pay. >> i think all of us losing our pay if we don't pass the budget is the right thing to do. i'm for sutzing spending, passing the budget is not quite enough, but at least it is a step in the right direction. if you went to your credit counselor and said, i can't pay my bills, he wouldn't say, we'll extend your limit, he'd say, what will you do to pay your bills in the future and a budget is a big step toward doing that. one of the frustrations i think of
is the marking of that day, mlk day, and one of abraham lincoln. how do you see this moment in the context of that struggle because that was resonant and poignant, wasn't it? >> it was very powerful, and keep in mind he said something, martin, that tied it all together. he said that we realized long ago that we could not survive and thrive as half slave state and half free. and basically i think what he was saying is we've come a long way, and i think he showed what lincoln did to make the country stronger, again having a vision of what we could do, and then i think he tried to use that to say, okay, now a lot has happened in between those times. we still face difficulties, but let's, again, be inspired by the aspiration of those who came before us so that each person could pursue happiness, you know, life, liberty, and property, and do it in a way that made sense. so i really think -- as i listened to chris, i couldn't help but think of a note i wrote while the president was speaking. i wrote the president is not trying to take us to common ground but take us to higher ground, to higher g
republicans elected a white house screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-mo

their sauerkraut. >> they were invited to a screening of "lincoln," apparently at the very last minute -- >> nobody's perfect. >> i would think when the president invites you to see a movie at the white house, you might want to go. maybe if you were disagreeable in nature, not fun and quite frankly not interested in getting anywhere on spending, maybe you would decline. look at the president. why don't i play that sound bite again, no matter what you think of his ideologically, joe, wouldn't you want to have a beer with that guy or a beer with mitch mcconnell. >> you keep interrupting. >> we should get a jar. >> should get a jar. he's a likable guy. we spent time with him. i like him an awful lot. he's ae's a likable guy. he hasn't reached out to republicans and he hasn't reached out a lot. when he reached out, they haven't come. he said his daughters don't want to spend that much time with him. he will have a lot of time to play cards. >> get merlot. >> cigarettes. will the president let them smoke? >> coming up. arianna huffington and nbc director chuck todd and "washington post," eugene robinso

, four presidents took the oath of office. here abraham lincoln served his single term in congress, and john quincy adams, the only former president to return to serve in the house spoke out against slavery. today we also remember in event that took place outside the building but reverberated within. this year marks the 50th anniversary of the reverend r. luther king junior's march on washington, which spurred passage of the historic civil rights laws. we are honored to have with us a colleague, congressman john lewis, a speaker at that historic march.

of the party or a stick in the mud. >> president obama hosted a screening of the movie "lincoln," and press reports show he invited them, they all inclined to attend. president obama has invited john boehner to six state dinners, boehner declined all six times, he did accept president george bush's to a state dinner for the meaningless queen elizabeth. president obama invited senate minority leader mitch mcconnell to two state dinners, and to celebrate the basketball team from his home state. mcconnell declined all those invitations. and president obama invited all newly elected members of congress to the white house for a reputation. less than half of the freshmen republicans attended. joining me now, howard fineman, in my experience, this socializing thing is the most overrated legislative strategy imaginable. i have never seen it matter in any way at all. if booze could do this it would have fixed a lot of things a lot easier a long time ago. >> yes, of course, and booze consumption in d.c. exceeds that in other years of the country, with the possible exception of las vegas. there was a
republican party of abraham lincoln. >> those extremists were alive and well this week, calling for the president's impeachment and saying president obama was acting like a king with his executive orders on gun safety. this kind of extremism gets them a 26% rating. do you think that really is what it's all about? or is it the obstruction or both? >> i think the rating is going to go down, ed. i think we're looking at potential for the republican party to be rated in the eyes of the american people much the way the entire congress is rated. do nothing and down in the teens. and as i said, that's suicide for the republican party. >> at the same retreat today, republicans were told by a pollster to stop talking about rape. pretty good advice, i would say. is this because the extremism takes over the discussion when republicans do try to talk about issues as sensitive as that? >> in many respects some of them do not know how to talk about it, ed. you heard what colin powell said, what you played there. i've heard what colin powell has said for the past 20 years or so about racism in
there to help you. and i would also obviously abraham lincoln and par tin luther king are going to be mentioned, at least their spirit for sure. i would wiped it to women. nobody seems to ever name drop susan b. anthony or eleanor roosevelt. it might be time for that now, particularly since the president's been getting some heat of not having enough women in his second term and the women's vote contributed to his re-election mightily. >> historically speaking, how much does a second inaugural speech matter? does it set the tone? do people hold the presidential account foblable for it? >> not too many matter. abraham lincoln's is the huge exception, that with malice toward none speech but he was uttering it when it looked like the union was going to be victorious. they're important as olive branch speeches. jefferson said in 1801, we are not federalists or not republicans. we're americans essentially. and the president might want to take that kind of bipartisan tone. it's about a unity speech. and anybody who's looking for a lot of new policy ideas are not going to get any. this is about poetry
to others as more inspirational. i look at the highenned security during lincoln's reelection where he referenced god 14 times, trying to bring the country together during a civil war that was dividing our nation. i look at the depression and fdr, trying to tell people that fear is the thing to fear and that to come together and address the economy and go forward together. you look for words of inspiration, you look for a leader who can bring a country together and heal divisions, and that's what i'll look for, too, is what kind of tone, what kind of leader is a second term president obama going to be. >> we'll be watching along with you, jennifer. great to have your perspective. appreciate it very much. >> thank you. >>> looking ahead to the next four years with president obama in the white house, why some experts are already predicting serious second term challenges. >>> also, we have a severe flu outbreak and an update on it. why the cdc believes it's becoming a greater threat to seniors in this country. that's ahead.
